I was recently lucky enough to curate a month of Sundress Publications’s The Wardrobe‘s Best Dressed, a project dedicated to showcasing outstanding work by women-identified and genderqueer individuals.
My second selection was String Theory (Mongrel Empire Press, 2015) by Jenny Yang Cropp. Please click on the following links to read:
“For My Mother, After Becoming a Mother“
“Dream in Which I Learn My Sister Is Dead“
